Can you imagine longer kill times with thrusters, sprint and motion tracker? lololololololol
Have switching to a pistol be the only way to backpack reload.
Hmm, not bad. Would definitely make me reconsider dropping it, granted it was buffed. As is, there's no reason at all to use the Magnum.

BR/AR starts means 0% Magnum.
BR/Magnum starts means replacing your Magnum for another weapon, so maybe a 5% increase in usage since you spawn with it.

I should note that this post is pure fact and nothing but the truth, so help me baby jesus.

I think ill rage if any weapons get nerfed instead of buffed.

Can 343 change weapon stats via server side??

Ehhhhhhhhh.. I like Halo when it's POWERFUL.

Grenades are fine. Kill times are alright. Automatics being useful is a good thing.
Magnum needs to do some push-ups.
me too. The ar br start is basically perfect...i hope that doest change come launch day. Id rater have buffs than nerfs:)

You could've called me by name, Fuchs. :'(

In all seriousness, it's been ages since I posted at HBO. Good times.
Sorry, some people get weird about that so I figured I'd just link to your posts.

HBO: 33% less sodium than GAF, same great taste.

Fine for this current sandbox, but perfect in the grand scheme of things? Ehhhhhhhh

There is only one true universal start Halo deserves, and it doesn't include a BR.

I'd like the Assault Rifle to be slightly tuned down. Its too powerful in its current state.
Disagree. It was a little on the strong side during the first week, but now that everyone has a BR to go along with it at start things have normalized nicely.

Eh, I still feel like it's too powerful. Not by much, but by enough that it's still frustrating to get killed by it.
That's the oldschool Halo fan in you reacting to getting killed with what used to be a garbage weapon. Let it gooooo.

I don't think that'll ever go away no matter how much you nerf it. It's just the nature of getting killed by an automatic weapon in Halo

Ah, our boy SatansReverence from gaming side beta thread had this to say about us on TeamBeyond:

"I saw it on Neogaf and that place is worse than pre halo 4 waypoint lol."

Haven't laughed this hard in months.

And see, this response doesn't even upset me because I think you're right, but I also think that it really is too overpowered.
Honestly, I didn't even mean to come off as confrontational. I really do think that for a lot of people, getting killed with an AR still carries shameful connotations, and that that's where a lot of the issue lies.

Looks like Mexicans are playing more against US players instead of playing or getting paired with mexicans and reporting US host advantages. So the beta dont have some sort of regional restrictions ?.

I keep typing up responses to him, then sighing and closing the tab. Just not worth it, IMO.

Yeah. MM will prioritize based on region, a little, but mostly it focuses on time. Euro players and Aussies are regularly getting matched on US servers, so really, you've got it pretty good in comparison :p

I don't care if the AR is useful, that gun is for babies. It's not interesting or exciting at all. Just a right trigger fest and aim for the body. ZZZZ
Disagree; I actually find it quite fun now that thrusters have been added into the mix. An AR duel has the potential to be interesting now (or awful, but that's true of BR duels as well).

I did the same thing last night a few times (thus the simple BidenNo.gif). Dude's a straight up brick wall.

I don't get why people say BR duels are so much better than AR duels. I mean, yeah in general it takes more skill to dominate with BR, but when two similarly skilled players go against each other, BR duels end up looking like some bizarre seizing mating dance with all the random juke strafing. Again, better than AR duels, but it's not like it's the single greatest experience in video games.

Upset was the wrong word, I know you weren't being confrontational, I meant it more like I don't really have a reason to argue your point against mine because I want you to be right, but I still think it is honestly a bit too powerful.
